D-Statcom With Fuzzy Controller For Power Quality Enhancement In Distribution Systems
There has been increase in the demand for reliable and high quality power distribution systems. In power
distribution systems quality in distribution of power is desired. The problems that occur frequently in such systems include
low power factor, harmonic distortion and voltage sags. In order to achieve this Distributed Static Compensator (DSTATCOM) is used. This device along with LCL passive filter when used with power distribution systems the quality of
power gets improved. By injecting current into the distribution system, the D-STATCOM improves the quality in power
distribution. The extensive simulations made in MATLAB’s SIMULINK revealed that the proposed approach is effective.
